AC/DC Co-Founder Malcolm Young Dies at 64

MADRID – Malcolm Young, Australian guitarist and co-founder of the rock band AC/DC, died on Saturday at age 64 after a long struggle with illness, the band announced on Facebook.

Australian media reported that the musician died surrounded by his family, including his wife, three grandchildren and his two brothers.

“Today it is with deep heartfelt sadness that AC/DC has to announce the passing of Malcolm Young,” the band wrote in a statement on their official Facebook page.

“As a guitarist, songwriter and visionary he was a perfectionist and a unique man. He always stuck to his guns and did and said exactly what he wanted. He took great pride in all that he endeavored,” the statement added.

Young died one month after his brother and AC/DC producer, George, passed away.

The guitarist was born on Jan. 6, 1953 in the Scottish city of Glasgow. He migrated with his family to Australia in 1963.

He founded, alongside with his brothers Angus and George, the hard rock band in Sidney in 1973.

Three years later, they moved to London, where they started a successful international career.

AC/DC was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003.
